Inspiration

by Barbara Wood last modified Nov 10, 2017 06:30

I am frequently asked for advice on how to write.  And just as frequently, I get requests for inspiration.  So here are two for the price of one.

While I do not write non-fiction, I do nonetheless strive for accuracy, realism and truth in my writing, because people believe the printed word.  And so my advice pertains to both genres, fiction and non-fiction: be sure of your facts and be prepared to back them up.  Don’t do shoddy research.  Be meticulous.  Readers are placing faith in you.  

As for “inspirational” advice, one word: Perseverance.  If you desire to publish someday, get your ideas or stories out there, and then stick to it, write, get those words down, don’t let anything, or anyone, stand in your way.  Listen with an open mind to criticism and suggestions for rewrites.  Remember, editors are not adversaries, they are people who want the best possible writing you can offer, and very often an editor can see what you have overlooked.
